@columbiariver yes, we have two which we planted in a shadier area and they're doing well. Bloomed a lot longer than the books said they would! We have the mango lewisia.

@columbiariver had beautiful warm sunny weather over Xmas season, now abit chillier but only about 8" of snow. Had an MRI just before Xmas, find out the results this Wednesday. I'm hanging in there but a little worried about gardening this year!

Oh no. Is this g or k? I hope it's not your back. Well, darn it. I'm not too structurally sound and have altered my life around things. Gardening is tough. Raised beds galore for you. Do keep me posted. I'll be thinking of you @gjones

Katy, what can I do for you? My mri in may turned to shoulder surgery (rotator cuff tear) in June. I was very limited prior to surgery and afterward recovery was long. Nearly full range of motion now tho! Also have a pretty successful story with a disc replacement surgery in 2005. I don't what you have on your plate, but you can do it. We're all here for you. @gjones

@columbiariver Thanks for the kind support! I'll let you know when I get my MRI results. From June to now, they have tried to determine what's happening. I've had 3 sets of X-rays, an ultrasound, a CATscan, blood work, cortisone injections and a MRI. That's all the tests I'm letting them do. If they can't figure it out, I'll adjust and live like this!

I understand. We have to draw the line. Medical testing seems endless. I'll keep you in my prayers dear lady. @gjones
